Research Topic: "Assessing Sunscreen Product Toxicity on Coral Fragments: A New Approach methodology for Enhancing Reliability and Addressing Environmental Concerns"
Brief Abstract: A New Approach Methodology (NAM) for assessing sunscreen toxicity on coral fragments by evaluating the entire product composition rather than individual ingredients. The study assessed seven sunscreens and found that two had harmful effects while five did not. This approach could help establish criteria for "reef-safe" sunscreens.
